It’s movie time for visitors to a Derbyshire village hall this weekend.
Somercotes Village Hall in Nottingham Road will be the venue for the screening of the star studded Asteroid City on Saturday, November 25, at 6.30pm.
The non-profit Somercotes Cineroom is led by volunteers. It was set up in 2019 with the aim of bringing high quality cinema to Alfreton.
A spokesman for the volunteer team said: “Our next film night for the local community in Somercotes is fast approaching. On Saturday, November 25, we are showing Wes Anderson’s recent star studded cinematic release.
“A recently bereaved family hole up at a desert backwater in this surreal and whimsical tale.
“It is not aimed at children, but the adult themes within, such as suicide and domestic abuse, are tackled in an undetailed manner.”
They continued: “Doors open at 6pm and the film will be due to start at 6.30pm.
“There will be refreshments available but feel free to bring your own snacks and a cushion too, for extra comfort.
“There is parking at the village hall and the hall is wheelchair accessible with disabled toilet facilities.
“We can put subtitles on the film if requested. The film has a runtime of one hour 41 minutes and there will be an interval approximately half-way through.”
Tickets for Asteroid City, which has a rating of 12, cost £5 and are available to buy online here
Alternatively tickets can be purchased from Somercotes Parish Council.
